Cooking by the Book, 12/2/2014 - Brian
This is a consummate winter meal: pork cutlets brined in sugar and salt, served with warm coleslaw composed of white and red cabbage and tossed with a dressing composed of walnut oil, olive oil, sherry vinegar and some sugar and spice. You can prepare this dish is just over half an hour, a perfect pathway for ending a busy day. This recipe is from Pork, the lively new and serious exploration of pigs and porcine recipes by Phil Vickery and Simon Boddy. As a point of disclosure, Suzen and I have not made this ourselves, yet. But we have plans. On a weeknight, after a busy day of teaching and writing, sometimes we both just want a simple but elegant meal. Nothing too heavy and definitely something swiftly prepared. This recipe is perfect for those constraints. You can add some boiled potatoes, as shown in the picture, another veggie of your choice, or just go cutlets+slaw.
